    Optimus was 50 US but a lot of the others were 25-35 US. And personally I'd like another accessory or two with the MS figures for the price because I'm finding more and more NA in my collection.

    they could definitely use a few random bonuses every now and then.

    Like they did with Hoist. Since most their figures just use pegs for the heads I wouldn't mind a few alternative heads; Sideswipe for one.

    *while looking at the metallic Optimus with clear windshields...

    why do I have this sinking feeling that Soundwave will be re-released with a clear chest sooner or later?

    Opaque chest is accurate to the cartoon- but a toy deco would be fine in my book also

    That Ravage is incredible - especially considering the size class. It is actually proportionate (compared to other versions, even [especially] the larger Siege version). Also, what are the artistic liberties that you see with Rumble/Frenzy? Not debating your stance, I'm just not aware.

    I'm wondering if it's a mix of the lighting and the camera's contrast/color sensor?

    Yeah I feel like if I'm smart I'll hold out six months for a premium edition.... Optimus looks so much nicer with clear windows

    Hmmn you could be right. Rumble is looking kind of washed out/gray so it may be really boosted brightness/contrast. I’m impressed either way. Love the way that a Legends scale cassette bot can hold a bent legged pose like Rumble there. Astonishing. Just need to see how it scales with NA (should be fine) and how it compares to their Soundwave when it’s revealed. I’m doing New Ages smaller scale but the larger MS bots fit pretty well scale-wise. Just need to see who does a nicer version.

    Nice to see a ball jointed neck, seems to be becoming standard for ms at last.

    Yes it is. I was surprised to see the pre-order for the Reflector. Hopefully pre-orders for Soundwave go up soon too.

    Agree. The one thing I wish they would have fixed (compared to the aged dx9)

    i dont see the flap as that much of a negative. if this is the price that must be paid for arguably the best looking legends soundwave ever then so be it.

    i cant wait for him and his minions to be released on the world.
